(Saturn’s) 33 (moons)

Up until about 5 or 10 years ago, it looked like Saturn had about 30 or so moons – see Space Today’s  Exploring Saturn from 2005. When the Cassini spacecraft which had been launched in 1997 began sending data back, all kinds of new discoveries were made including more moons.  Today over 62 moons have been recorded!  And not all moons are the same as reported on the NASA website about the Cassini mission to Saturn.  Here is the illustration from the website.Saturn's Moons

For a Powers of 10 project, write a report about the similarities and differences that have been found in Saturn’s moons.
